Hunting Pirates with a Mining Laser
Highsec miner Overrlord Game put some tank on his Retriever, but not enough. If you're going to mine in a Retriever in a manner consistent with the Code, you can't greedily spend two lowslots on mining yield mods instead of tank. Agent Lenda Shinhwa busted into the asteroid belt like the hero he is and killed Overrlord.
A bit of research turned up evidence that Overrlord is a real sweetheart. He claims to be a lowsec anti-pirate. Naturally, he spent his days mining ore in highsec belts.
A responsible Agent always, Lenda filed the appropriate paperwork and notified Overrlord of his loss--since the carebear was probably AFK at the time. Lenda also gave him a good-natured ribbing about the anti-pirate image he was trying to cultivate.
Overrlord vowed revenge. There was no place he wouldn't travel to follow Lenda, and no lengths to which he would not go to exact vengeance. Lenda's days of moving freely about highsec were over. Overrlord's would be an epic story of retribution.
To speed up the revenge story, Lenda sent him his current location. Tempting fate!
Unfortunately, Overrlord Game's story didn't go entirely as planned. He was able to follow directions and report to Lenda's station, but he incapable of camping him. Instead, he got to watch as Lenda left the station and continued killing miners at will. Overrlord promptly gave up his revenge quest. Perhaps one of those miners was really a lowsec pirate hunter? One can never tell these days.
